(Above) A French release poster for Robert Aldrich’s What Ever Happened to Baby Jane (1962)? The movie seems to have developed a bit of a reputation as a camp piece, but for me it still works as an expertly crafted thriller. I saw a screening of the film a few weeks ago alongside An American in Paris as part of a classic movie weekend at the historic Canton Palace Theatre in Canton, Ohio. The theatre has a few more events in the next few months worth checking out, including a Twilight Zone Fest featuring episodes of the anthology series, a Strangers on a Train and Psycho double feature, and a weekend of Universal monster movies from the 1930s and 1940s.
Poster comes from the Heritage Auction website, which has an amazing collection of movie art for sale.
